Jodee and Justin from Just In Time Gourmet are two people who I admire for their passion for supporting local Western Australian producers. I love promoting WA as having a fantastic food scene and these products that Jodee is going to tell you about show that we have some awesome produce in this great state!
Perth is quickly becoming one of Australia’s top food destinations. With new and innovative eateries and bars popping up here there and everywhere, it’s bringing out the foodie in everyone. From being the home to one of Australia’s first crowdfunded restaurants, to cafes which prefer our four-legged friends over us to offering a huge array of hawkers markets and food festivals. We know how to make good food and we are darn good at eating it too!
We all know a great day starts with a great breakfast. It’s safe to say that there are an endless number of Perth breakfast spots to choose from. Sometimes though, when you’ve had a hard week or the kids have kept you up all night, it’s just as nice to treat yourself to a home cooked brekkie. Give the other half a nudge and suggest breakfast in bed so you can relax in your cosy pyjamas and hey, make sure they know where to find the champagne glasses too!
Not only is Western Australia amazing for dining out but we also make some top notch food products to enjoy at home. And what’s even better is that there are so many amazing WA food products which can take your next home cooked breakfast from great to mouth-wateringly delicious in seconds. Here’s 5 of our favourites:
Hazelnuts grown in the majestic region of Manjimup soaked in ooey-gooey honey infused with the indulgent flavours of truffle, drooool. Yes this honey pot by The Truffle & Wine Co could be eaten straight out of the jar however it also makes a good condiment over yogurt, cereal and fruit. If you’re really looking to indulge, pour it over a stack of buttermilk pancakes topped with vanilla ice-cream for the naughtiest but tastiest breakfast treat.
We are blessed with nearly year-round good weather here in Perth which means we are barbeque fanatics. Bacon, eggs, sausages and hash browns done on the BBQ to start off a Saturday morning is the breakfast of champions. If you love a little tomato sauce to wash down your savoury breakfast then you must try the Angus Ogilive Dark Plum and Onion Ketchup. With a bit of spice kick it’ll compliment your grilled brekkie down to a tee.
We warn you, these drunken pears are addictive! You cannot go past this awesome product by the team at Ogilive & Co to put on your next breakfast menu. Freshly poached pears are combined with juicy muscatel wine grapes and soaked in Chardonnay syrup with a sprinkling of cinnamon. Pop these juicy gems on a bowl full of granola and yoghurt or match them with an early morning cheeseboard. It’s never too early for cheese!
No breakfast condiment list is complete without a bottle of bubbles. Rachel Davenport the winemaker behind the MyattsField bubbles is known as the ‘Sparkling Queen of the Perth Hills’ and there is very good reason for this as she makes one heck of a sparkling wine. This 500ml bottle is slightly smaller than your average wine bottle which makes it perfect for a couple of glasses to aid breakfast. Whether you’re having toast, cereal, pancakes or bacon and eggs, sparkling wine goes with everything – take our word for it!
If you haven’t visited The Berry Farm in Margaret River yet, then we suggest you do! This is one of their many fabulous spreads that we are simply hooked on. The dash of whisky takes this traditional jar of marmalade to that next level. Plus we love how there are no artificial additives, no preservatives and only all-natural ingredients in it. Team this up with a warm piece of toast, fresh muffin or swirl it through oatmeal or yoghurt.
Are you drooling over the screen yet? We sure are and that’s not even the tip of the ice-berg as Western Australia is home to a countless number of tasty foodie products perfect for your next home-cooked breakfast. Enjoy these condiments with locally made bread, fruit, eggs, meats and you have WA on a plate for brekkie!
